Selling my trusty campervan after having a great trip around Europe coving 6,400 miles. It NEVER broke down during entire trip a testament to it's reliability! Also it starts up well and is a good runner.

The ONLY reason I am parting with this gem is because it was purchased for the sole purpose of my travelling abroad. Now I don't have the space to park it nor the time to enjoy using it.

In July 2011 it had over £900 worth of professional work done in the engine compartment (Receipt provided with the service history).
This included;
Full engine flush, new oil and filter etc.
Ignition timing redone
Tappets adjusted
Replacement skimmed exhaust manifold fitted
New tail pipe and box (exhaust) fitted
New leisure battery (88amp hours) and heavy duty leisure power relay
New water pump belt
New starter motor
Cylinder head gasket replaced and head refurbished
Ignition barrel replaced and two new ignition keys are provided.

The engine is now in a good working order and the van goes along nicely at a leisurely speed of 50-55mph.

I have put new curtains throughout the campervan and the carpet in the “living space” and lino tiles in the rear of the van have recently been replaced. New energy efficient strip light in the living space (spare bulb included).

The van has lots of convenient storage space including a small wardrobe in the rear with overhead locker. The kitchen is in a good working order. Inlcudes:
2 ring gas hob
Grill with grill pan
Hot plate

Enamel sink with hot and cold mixer tap

Problems:
Please don't expect this van to be in perfect condition. There are some small amounts of rust and the paint work isn't in the best condition but expected from an old van! It was purchased as a “doer upper” and considerable work has been done but some small jobs remain which you may choose to do.

These include;
Driver window regulator needs replacing. The window winds up and down but is stiff.

2 small chips to windscreen
Body work would benefit from some sanding as there are some stipples in the paint work. Not apparent from a distance. Signs of rust in a few places.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like to schedule a viewing.
